Conference on Robot Learning

November 16 - 18, 2020 | Virtual Conference

CoRL and COVID-19

The CoRL organizing committee and board hope you are safe and well! As a result of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of holding large gatherings in the autumn of this year, the committee has decided to hold the Conference on Robot Learning virtually on Nov 16 - 18, 2020.

The committee and board further acknowledge the challenges in producing high-quality experimental results during the social distance policies implemented in different parts of the world. In light of this, we have made two salient changes to the submission guidelines:

  1. We have postponed the paper submission deadline by three weeks to July 28th.

  2. We have added a provision for authors who are unable to collect experimental results (and cannot rely on experimental datasets) due to policies related to the pandemic. Namely, authors affected by these policies may validate their methods exclusively through simulations, provided that they supply a one-page supplemental document explaining why their results should generalize to real robots.

Please refer to the updated Call For Papers for more information regarding these changes. We expect to share further information about the virtual event in the late summer.

Stay safe and best wishes,

CoRL 2020 Organizing Committee & CoRL Steering Committee
